Bigfoot Memoirs

Stan Johnson

“Stan has been blessed by God to receive much information and wisdom through his experiences traveling in other dimensions of time and space. Stan, the official goodwill ambassador of Bigfoots, has received telepathic communication from the Sasquatch people, star people—and the ascended masters of wisdom.”
In a semiliterate, monosyllabic style, the retired logger recounts his good times with the “Sasquatch People” in a number of interviews (which he conducted telepathically—how does one transcribe that?) and stories in which they request salt from him, behave very spiritually, and disclose that they come from the fifth dimension (and vacation there in winter). There’s romance (the 16-year-old Sasquatch daughter falls for old Stan, a septuagenarian); intrigue (the evil ruler of their home planet, Arice, wants to destroy the kindly Bigfeet on Earth—and nothing will stop him in his lust for glory!); travel (Stan describes the fifth dimension as “the true Garden of Eden” and visits the interior of the Earth through a base on one of the Poles); and genetics (there are Sasquatch with dome- and pyramid-shaped heads). If Stan didn’t have a healthy pension to live off of, I’m sure he’d be recounting his stories from inside a psychiatric hospital. SK

Encyclopedia of the Unexplained

Jenny Randles and Peter Hough

Instead of giving us a few lines on all the anomalous subjects in the heavens and on earth (and appropriated by The X-Files), the authors have attempted to “focus on just a handful of true mysteries of modern science.” And they have tried to do this objectively. Subdivided into eight sections, for your supernatural convenience: “The Supernatural Earth”; “Space Invaders”; “Out of Time?”; “Death by Supernatural Causes?”; “Mind Matters”; “The Spiritual Dimension”; “Strange Beings”; and “The Alien Zoo.”
Jenny Randles of Great Britain, reportedly the most successful writer of books on anomalies, seems to specialize in chatty text and personal anecdotes. This may be the key to her success: Without a high content of cold steely science or crackpot theorizing, her work can be easily consumed by those who file books on UFOs and strange powers next to their copies of the National Enquirer and Soap Opera Digest. This is not to say Encyclopedia is superficial; this is a solid introduction for those seeking to delve into the most well-documented mysterious phenomena. SK

Casebook on Alternative 3: UFOs, Secret Societies and World Control

Jim Keith

Nearly 20 years ago, British television aired Alternative 3, a bewildering exposé on the world’s elite constructing a secret space- travel and colonization program to escape our doomed Earth. Although it was revealed as an April Fool’s joke (in a program which aired months too late), the info contained chilling similarities to covert operations in effect today. As author Keith postulates, “Alternative 3 points to, if in a clumsy and unbelievable fashion, the deadly alignment of technology and elitist control… [it] may not be true at all, in the sense of a revealed scripture, but only as a persuasive metaphor for totalitarian control in the manner of Orwell’s 1984.” Keith discusses data from Alternative 3 and immediately refutes it, then offers stranger real-life parallels (he reveals the “murdered scientists” working on Alternative 3 were all fictitious, but then ticks off a list of real scientists killed under most suspicious circumstances). One would like to dismiss Keith as a crackpot, simply because of the horrors he unfolds, but given the cool, collected way in which he presents his data and the logical conclusions he comes to, it may be time to get nervous.
Learn how our spy establishment and the CIA act as “little more than the private army of the Fortune 500” and are “often designed to violate international law and to trample human rights.” Get the skinny on CIA mind control of television, LSD, CIA-funded eugenics experiments, human cloning and 70,000 cattle mutilations. Was Jonestown the prototype of an African-American extermination program? Are birth control, AIDS, bio-warfare and man-made UFOs all part of some covert, loosely connected conspiracy to control the planet? Certainly the suppression of the Third World is: “The Third World is being forcefully relieved of natural resources and exploited for cheap labor, and is in fact seen… as maintaining maximum profitability as long as it’s kept in abject poverty.”
Casebook explores our preoccupation with WWII, parallels to Nazi actions (such as the CIA psycho-chemical experiments conducted on American enlisted men—some involving Nazi nerve gases), and Nazi involvement in more credible realms (war criminal Werner von Braun was instrumental in our early space program). In the last chapter, Keith admits his immense reluctance to acknowledge the Nazi connections but “in reshaping the totalitarian control during this century I saw the plans of the Nazis manifestly did not die with the German loss of World War II. The ideology and many of the principle players survived and flourished after the war, and have had a profound impact on postwar history, and on events taking place today… Nazi interests have been entwined with other totalitarian control mechanisms of the world, with the intelligence, police and psychiatric establishments, with eugenics and genetic research, as well as with the plans of moneyed elites.” SK

The Commander X Files

Commander X

Earth is on the fast track to annihilation, caught between good ’n’ evil alien forces, these primarily being the evil Grays (and Dracos) of popular legend, and the benevolent Nordics, a non-aggressive confederation of human and non-human races. Commander X continues the Nazi-UFO collaboration story, although his version has the Nazis infiltrating the U.S. spy and space agencies through the Grays’ string-pulling. E.T.s respect us, the author claims, because our auras are proportionately larger than theirs. Is this why they’re trying to breed with us, so that they may “experience human emotions” as they have none of their own? X frequently makes reference to Inner Light Publications—one is always wary of authors who reference themselves (or other authors on the same press) for facts.
Fancifully illustrated, including a handful of goodies like hand-drawn maps to Area 51 and the Dulce Air Force Base and a transcript of Commander X’s entertaining hypnosis sessions. The last chapter reprints various classified documents, mostly pertaining to UFOs, and newspaper reprints, mostly pertaining to bio-warfare. Plus an Alternative 3 document based around a certain Mr. X (the, ahem, Antichrist), who, besides orchestrating all wars and political and social strife in all countries, plans to run the world on nuclear energy. This, the most devious Satanic ploy, is just a “simple chore for Mr. X.” Printed only on one side of the page, this weighty tome has only half the information you might expect. SK

The Controllers

Commander X

Some researchers believe the Government has been producing fake UFO material and releasing it to the public in an effort to confuse the multifaceted alien issue. This thin volume by the prolific Commander X (also the title of an alien abductions book by Martin Cannon) is a exemplary candidate for impostor status.
Ostensibly about the “strange, parallel race that has complete control of our educational processes, the media and is a dominant influence over all worldly governments,” The Controllers ping-pongs between hidden races from hominoid saurians to chaneques (Mexican gnomes), but the most pages are devoted to alien breeding programs. It is probably the only book to acknowledge the Tesla free-energy scam and masturbate over far-flung extra-terrestrial theories. They seem to be mutually exclusive. What does this spell? Immense entertainment and, very likely, little fact.
The “Alien Babies” chapter, concerning the Grays’ cross-breeding program, is most amusing: “Hey, I know you guys need sperm. Why don’t you come back in six months.” After the handmaid and her crones have come to visit, the desire for the E.T. lady puts X’s relationship with his inferior girlfriend in jeopardy: “‘I’ve always had a lot of sexually based guilt…’” After his anger dissipates, he becomes “proud of [his] new status as a father of space kids…” and reflects upon his impotency, which “may have been influenced by the E.T.s’ suctioning off my sexual energies, but the root cause [of my dysfunction] was that I didn’t want to share my seed with [my girlfriend]…” Later he describes the astral visits to his “space kids,” and how he tries to connect with them by playing Yanni(!). Throw in some discordant passages about ritual Satanic abuse, secret cities under Death Valley and Nazi occultism, with all the naughty bits emphasized in CAPITALS and you’ve got Commander X. The book makes reference to the Amok Fourth Dispatch, so it can’t be completely fraudulent. SK

Extraterrestrials in Biblical Prophecy and the New Age Great Experiment

G. Cope Schellhorn

Is this the sort of thing some retired English professors do instead of gardening? Schellhorn reprints Bible passages (taken from the Revised Standard Version), examines them and points out the blindingly obvious references to sky gods, their spacecraft and super powers. He “attempts to explain interrelationship between ancient and present UFOs and scriptural prophecy” in relation to the modern age. Is our existence just some “grand experiment”? Are the fiery sky gods in many creation myths more than hyperbole? Have the “end times” commenced with WW II, ushering in a tremendous increase in UFO sightings? Will mankind be tested in trials by fire—with the Messiah and his extraterrestrial host standing by to offer assistance to those who listen? Has there been some kind of flagrant conspiracy among scientists and religious scholars to avoid the implications of the extensive and compelling data? They certainly won’t champion this book, but that’s no reason not to pray to the heavens next time you’re in a fix. SK

Forbidden Science: Journals 1957-1969

Jacques Vallee

Vallee, along with his mentor, J. Allen Hynek, was commissioned by the Air Force in 1967 to disprove the UFO phenomena. This volume, spanning the years from Christmas Eve 1957 through 1969, is the very personal record of a man on the frontiers of paranormal and possibly extraterrestrial investigations. In the foreword, Vallee asserts, “These phenomena (UFO) were deliberately denied or distorted by those in authority within the Government and the military. Science never had fair and complete access to the most important files. This fact has been alleged, but never proven. The present book proves it… in fact, the major revelation of these diaries may be the demonstration of how the scientific community was misled by the Government, how the best data was kept hidden, and how the public record was shamelessly manipulated.” The writing is forthright; because it is a collection of diaries, it is dated, with then-current commentary, and the existentialist philosophizing of an unruly young astronomer (along with opinions Dr. Vallee no longer holds). This pulls the reader back in time, and Vallee’s earnestness gives the book a personal tone. “These pages are nothing but a schoolboy’s notebook, in the strange classroom we call life.” An epilogue brings the reader to the present.

How To Build Your Own Flying Saucer or Mothership

Jorge Resines

In this manual published by Northern California’s Borderland Sciences Research Foundation (BSRF), Argentina- based Resines mentions how U.S.-led government coups have ‘eroded his country’s freedoms and culture’ and diminished his country’s interest in science. At times the relatively simple technology outlined suffers from convoluted Spanish-to-English translations, leaving the reader to agree with Resines that a native English speaker ought to take up the cause. Although there is nary a mention of granddaddy saucer-spinner Nikola Tesla, and Resines shows a marked dependence on the writings of George Adamski, the author has made a valiant effort at disseminating information in this handbook, which includes a lot of xeroxed material, a few vintage science articles, patents and numerous diagrams. The charming “warnings” in the foreword (“Children should not attempt to build their own flying saucer or mothership without the proper parental guidance; building a saucer will not help a failing marriage; the info contained herein should not take the place of certified medical therapy; and BE VERY CAREFUL!”) make one agree that saucer building would be a constructive replacement for television. Electrogravitation at home, for everyone! SK

Space Aliens From the Pentagon: Flying Saucers Are Man-Made Electrical Machines

William R. Lyne

Many of these conspiracy books overlap in their theories and opinions. With each turn, these stories seem more and more believable. Over 45 years of research went into Space Aliens, and it echoes many sentiments shared by others, such as that “there is no known evidence or personal knowledge, verified by any human being, of there being anything made by intelligent beings from beyond our Earth”; that you could build your own saucer at home (includes plans); and that the hole in the ozone and cattle mutilations are both results of our CIA/Nazi-run space program/Government.
On Page 59, we find a list of “little-known, officially suppressed, or publicly unknown facts” to which his book is related, including:
• An American citizen (naturalized), Nikola Tesla (an atheist and a capitalist) invented the flying saucer before 1900 and reduced it to practice by 1915 (the author claims to have rejected a high-paying CIA job in 1975 because they are violating the Bill of Rights by not making this saucer technology public).
• The American government later helped the Nazis steal the invention from Tesla and were developing it by 1937 in Los Alamos, New Mexico.
• The Nazis, unable to use the saucer during the war, sold the technology back to us in exchange for amnesty for war criminals and other perks.
• The U.S. government, on behalf of the Trilateral Commission, continues to enforce a Nazi-originated hoax that flying saucers are extraterrestrial or psychological in origin.
• Adolf and Eva were rescued from that doomed bunker via a Kraut-piloted flying saucer, and later were protected by NATO, pampered by LBJ while living in Kassel, Germany.
• Most forms of mass communications are primarily controlled by the Illuminati, through the secret agencies of our government, to brainwash the public.
• The Government stages abductions using actors, drugs and sets.
Says the author: “I’m not some old crank complaining about ‘them new-fangled rockets.’ I’m complaining about the selling to the American public of archaic rocket technology, when we have much better technology… [instead we’re given] some old piece of medieval junk which runs on crap dumped on us at exorbitant prices by the chemical cartels.” SK

Strange Encounters: Bizarre and Eerie Contact With UFO Occupants

Timothy Green Beckley

Tabloid-style headlines adorn the back cover (“Undersea Saucer Sinks Submarine, West Virginia Man Abducted by Weird ‘Vegetable’-like Humanoid”). Inside are goofy full-page illustrations, not to mention the liberal use of quotation marks which take the place of references (sample: “… not realizing that some people have been ‘singled out’ by the aliens to be ‘repeaters.’ Throughout their lives, these ‘select few’ seem to have the (sic) daily comings and goings ‘monitored’”). And he believes J. Allen Hynek! Not to mention the full-page photo of the Victorian-garbed author. Can you say H-O-A-X? SK
